A computer system uses daily automatically instituted program executions. Batch jobs can take a lot of the computer resources and executions easily be interfered with by the automatically instituted program. This contention can be alleviated by the automatically instituted program execution segmenting its execution at a plurality of benchmarks. At each benchmark, the time of day is accessed and compared with the time to run the next segment and the time for certain automatic program starts. The automatic daily execution continues only if sufficient time remains for completing its next not interruptible segment.
